bios reset

is done. The only thing *I* had ever changed on this computer was to enable power-on from the keyboard.

asus

While looking through autoruns, I noted that the Asus updater and asloader were already disabled. On the off chance that this was causing something to be missing that was required, I enabled them. This caused BSODs to be much more frequent, so I turned them back off.

I've updated pc probe, and rebooted, but still got a bsod after that.

asus updates

OK. Now I've updated Asus: Coll and Quiet, EPU-4, ProbeII and the chipset.

I still get a bsod within minutes if I try to make a dvd. Here's the latest.

more stability

Hmmm. Although it will still bsod if I try to cut a dvd within 10 minutes, if I stay away from that, I've been browsing for a few hours without it crashing. And I've been able to leave it on unattended for a couple of hours without returning to a blue screen.

I'm thinking that there were more than one problem. One of them, I believe, was connected with the system going to low-power mode, which I disabled. The other is starting to look like it may be related to DVDs. I'm going to make a full CD instead to see if that behaves differently.

cd not dvd

Hmm. I've been using the computer for the whole afternoon without a bsod when it used to occur several times in that time. I've even created a full CD with no problems. Now I'm going to try another DVD, just to confirm that it hasn't gone away by itself.

Added later: sure enough, attempting to create a DVD crashed it. I'll post the minidump tomorrow.

later: added minidump

Both dumps report stop error codes of A. One of them still points to amdppm as the cause.
Quote:
STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility
Did you try to up date this driver?

AtiPcie.sys Tue May 05 11:00:22 2009 - ATI PCIE Driver for ATI PCIE chipsetGlobal Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD

I believe it was suggested that you uninstall the software, Microsoft IntelliType Pro / IntelliPoint. I still find this driver which is associated with it:

NuidFltr.sys Fri May 08 04:53:31 2009

This driver is very obsolete:

SSPORT.sys Thu Aug 11 19:07:32 2005 - 32bit Port Contention Driver or SSPORT belongs to the software SSPORT or Port Contention Driver by Samsung Electronics. Uninstall this software.

If I could figure out what supplies amdpp.sys, I'd try to update it, but I can't figure that out.

According to the control panel, "Microsoft IntelliType Pro / IntelliPoint" are not installed, so I have no idea how to uninstall them. Should I re-name the NuidFltr.sys file so that windows can't find it?

Similarly, the only Samsung item showing in control panel is the "Samsung Universal Print Driver". I couldn't get my ML-1740 printer to work without it. Should I try renaming ssport.sys?
